Rio Scandi Shooting Head Fly Line

The RIO Scandi head is a very easy casting Scandi style shooting head, built on RIO's ultra-low stretch ConnectCore for the utmost in casting control and sensitivity. It is available in a multitude of lengths and weights to cover all rod and angling situations. For tight casting spots and the utmost in ease of casting use a head length that is between 2.5 and 3 times the length of the rod, thus a 12 ft rod would work best with a head that is between 30 and 36 ft in length. The shorter the head length, the tighter the back casting space an angler can fish in. With more room and better casting skills a longer head provides the angler with less line to strip in between each cast and more fishing time. For best performance, RIO recommends attaching the following head sizes to these shooting lines sizes: 275gr to 450gr - .024"/.026" Powerflex/ConnectCore shooting line, or 25lb SlickShooter/GripShooter 450gr to 550gr - .030"/.032" Powerflex/ConnectCore shooting line, or 35lb SlickShooter/GripShooter 550gr to 650gr - .035"/.037" Powerflex/ConnectCore shooting line, or 44lb SlickShooter/GripShooter 650gr and bigger - .040"/.042" Powerflex/ConnectCore shooting line, or 50lb SlickShooter/GripShooter

Rio Scandi Shooting Head Fly Line Reviews

Easy to control Review by TenaciousP
Posted on 4/9/15
I have been casting Skagit heads and was looking for something easy to manage when I didn't need heavy sink tips and the ability to throw heavy weighted flies. I have the 34' 510gr for a 7wt method 7126. It is a perfect fit.

I like this line because you can throw most spey flies without much effort. If I need to get down I can simply add a small shot and still cast it no problem. This line mends so easy you can always toss and upstream mend to get the fly a little lower before swinging. The biggest reason I like this is you can cast without the need to strip back in line every time. That is a big advantage in freezing temps.

The line is very visible but not too bright.
